Gakushuin University, Tokyo

Gakushūin University is a university in Toshima, Tokyo, established after World War II as part of the Gakushūin School Corporation.
The private university has antecedents in an Imperial Institute founded in 1884 during the Meiji period as part of the Gakushūin.
The Gakushūin was originally an educational institution for the Japanese nobility and was privatised in 1947. Even today, Gakushūin University is often considered elitist, as many students come from influential zaibatsu or former noble families, but mainly because of its traditional closeness to the imperial house.A department for women was established in 1950. This was spun off in 1953 as an independent women’s university, the Gakushūin Joshi Daigaku. (Source: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gakush%C5%ABin-Universit%C3%A4t)
